This book helps so much! I recommend buying it the second you see it at walmart, which they had out before the first archery season opened (Last week in September) It gave me tips that i used last year, which greatly helped me with more success. It helped my nephew get his first deer while him and I went out last year for the JR hunt. Alot of the info in it you may already know, but it is still nice to have around for the just in case. If you can't find it at walmart, I am sure you can find it here online, but like I have said many of times, it is well worth the $8, which can put knowledge in you that you may use the rest of your life hunting.
